If you wanted to see just how far past Libtard feminism has truly become, take a look at the Swedish women who are protesting patriarchy by running like horses through the streets of Stockholm.
It truly doesn't get any more idiotic than this, there point seems to have been lost somewhere between fighting for equality that already exists and the mental health pills that they forgot to take that day.
Appearing on BBC Question Time on Thursday following the horrific Islamic terrorist attack that left 22 people dead and dozens more injured at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, the young women called for the shutdown of “Saudi-financed mosques” which she considers responsible for radicalizing Muslims like the 22-year-old terrorist who blew himself up in order to commit his evil act as part of the caliphate.
“I myself am a Muslim,” the unidentified woman began speaking, with her head uncovered, after offering her prayers and support for the victims’ families. “I am a British Muslim and I am very proud of my heritage but I am also a realist and there is an elephant in the room here and, unfortunately — it is very unfortunate — there is an issue in regards to radicalization and extremism that does exist within our community,” she admitted.
“That is something that we have to accept and we have to deal with,” she urged before explaining that “children are being taught the Wahhabi interpretation of the Quran,” and “Saudi-trained clerics” are indoctrinating young children in the UK with the most radical form of Islam.
“We do have an issue within our mosques, within our religious institutions,” she stated. “We have children Saudi-trained clerics coming in and speaking to children as young as seven. And you know, that have these books, you know, children are taught…we have to do something about it.”
“I would say, for now, for now temporarily close down all Saudi-financed mosques,” she proposed. And I myself as a Muslim — I am a Muslim…” she said before being interrupted by applause from the audience.
To be even more politically incorrect, the bold young woman then took a shot at the liberal British immigration policies.
“Terrorism is also being imported right under our noses,” she declared.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had a hard time answering Sunday if Hillary Clinton should run for president again in 2020.
Appearing on CNN's "State Of The Union", Emanuel waffled over the question, ultimately insisting that Clinton "has to decide whether that's in her heart."
Clinton ran and lost to Donald Trump in 2016 in a stunning political upset. She delivered a commencement speech at Wellesley College on Friday, and she took several shots at Trump, including comparing him to Richard Nixon, who ultimately resigned from office.
"If Hillary Clinton is up for another presidential run, would that be a good thing for your party?" CNN anchor Dana Bash asked.
Emanuel was not quick with an answer.
"You know, look, you're asking something that—we're not even first through the midterm election. She hasn't even declared, for me to say that—" he started.
Bash pressed him, but Emanuel insisted that the question was "not a good question."
"You know, I love you," said an increasingly flustered Emanuel. "It's not a good question. OK? So the question is, it's not a good question."
"Why not?" Bash asked. "She sounded like she could be a candidate again. Would you think that's a good idea? You're a party leader."
"I happen to love Hillary, and I think she's full of energy," Emanuel said of Clinton, who was recently overcome by a coughing fit while delivering a commencement address.
He then went on to explain that it didn't matter what was in his head, but rather what was in her heart.
"And I happen to think there's a lot of time between now and the presidential [election], and she has to decide whether that's in her heart," he said. "We have a lot of time between now and the presidential election of 2020. Hillary has a lot to offer. The core question is not whether I think she would be a good candidate. It's whether she wants to run."
"Because," he concluded, "at the end of the day, the public's pretty smart. And if it's only going through the motion, don't pick that up."
Evergreen students made a demand regarding this video:
“We demand that the video created for Day of Absence and Day of Presence that was stolen by white supremacists and edited to expose and ridicule the students and staff be taken down by the administration by this Friday.”
College president George Bridges' response:
Based on conversations with the Attorney General’s office, the most likely course of action requires an investigation. We commit to launching an extensive forensic investigation of the theft of this video and to determining who stole it from the student. If that investigation yields a suspect, we will seek criminal charges against the individual in consultation with the Attorney General.
New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito (D-East Harlem) said "ultra right-wing forces" in Puerto Rico are trying to undermine this year's Puerto Rican Day Parade. The city's parade made national headlines with its decision to designate Oscar Lopez Rivera, a convicted terrorist, as its marshal. Lopez Rivera led the FALN, a left-wing liberation movement in Puerto Rico, which bombed several sites across the United States - including NYPD barracks. "A lot of the campaign putting pressure on the sponsors to withdraw... is being manipulated and organized and orchestrated from an ultra-right wing element on the island [of Puerto Rico]," Mark-Viverito said.
Mark-Viverito said pro-statehood forces feel "threatened" by Lopez Rivera's platform and are in turn trying to force companies to drop sponsorship. The right wing in Puerto Rico generally opposes statehood, but Gov. Ricardo Rossello (P) told the New York Post he is confident the protectorate will win statehood in its June 11 vote. Mark-Viverito successfully urged President Obama to commute the sentence of Lopez Rivera, who was released from prison during his administration. Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) recently joined a slew of supporters and sponsors in disavowing their involvement in the parade. Coca-Cola, Goya, the New York Yankees, JetBlue airlines, AT&T and WNBC-4 all dropped their sponsorship of the parade. Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), however, has voiced relative ambivalence to Lopez Rivera leading the popular parade.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) spoke Friday at an LGBT rights event at the Pride Center at Equality Park of South Florida, where she touted how liberals in the Democratic Party only voted for the nation's defense spending bill for fiscal year 2011 so they could repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
"Don't tell anybody I told you this," Pelosi said, before explaining how she was able to get liberal Democrats onboard to support the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, the annual federal law that specifies the Defense Department's budget and expenditures.
Pelosi described how in 2010 Democrats put an amendment into the NDAA for fiscal year 2011 that would repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the U.S. policy on homosexuals or bisexuals serving in the military for nearly two decades. She said Democrats had very few Republican votes to pass the bill with the amendment attached, so she had to approach the liberal faction of the Democratic Party, which she said never votes for the defense bill.
"I went to my Barney Franks, [Rep.] Barbara Lee [D., Calif.], [Rep.] John Lewis [D., Ga.], you name it, the liberal contingent in which I'm a member" Pelosi said. "And I said to them, ‘We are making history today.'"
If you really want to infuriate a group of liberals, where the Pepe meme mask into one of their diverse city lounges.
For those who don't remember, Hillary Clinton claimed the meme was in fact the symbol of white supremacy and the liberal media jumped all over it and said the same.
That's when they decided to start issuing claims that numerous other phrases and hand signals were also racist.
The sole reason you ask? Because apparently a few people who actually are white supremacist reposted meme's using the characters and emoji gestures that were actually part of Facebook.
Secretary of Defense James Mattis said in an interview airing Sunday that nothing keeps him up at night, but he keeps others up at night.
At the end of a lengthy interview on CBS program "Face The Nation" on the variety of threats facing the United States, host John Dickerson asked Mattis "what keeps you up at night?"
Without skipping a beat, the Pentagon chief replied, "Nothing, I keep other people awake at night."
This is in keeping with Mad Dog's overall Beastmode style.
A video that has gone viral on Facebook shows a German woman covered in bruises explaining how she was beaten by migrants for daring to respond to them calling her a “bitch”.
The clip, uploaded by the victim Stefanie Kirchhoff, has received almost 500,000 views since it was posted on Wednesday. In it, Kirchoff sardonically thanks Angela Merkel for opening the country’s borders to such ‘cultural enrichment’.
She has several huge welts and contusions all over her face as a result of the beating.
Showing how truly deluded many Germans are about the migrant crisis, some respondents to her Facebook post accused the woman of being a racist or staging the incident to make money.
Enrique Pena Nieto entered America ILLEGALLY. He then added insult to injury when he decided instead of working, he would be a full-time drunk and ILLEGALLY collect food stamps from the government.
After years of living off the American taxpayer, a new sheriff came to town by the name of Donald Trump and ICE grabbed Nieto at a local welfare office and tossed him back to Mexico.
Let's now hear about how terrible life is for Enrique and how unfair it is he can't keep drinking whiskey on the taxpayers' dime.
Jeremy Joseph Christian is facing murder charges after police say he killed two people on a MAX train headed to the Hollywood Transit Center Friday afternoon.
Witness accounts detail the moments leading up to the stabbing as hateful and rage-filled, as Christian allegedly hurled insults at two young Muslim women sitting on the train.
When two men came to the defense of the young women, police say Christian slashed their throats - killing them.
A third stabbing victim is recovering in the hospital.
Christian is no stranger to the law and no stranger to racist rants, either.
Court records show Christian was convicted of robbery and kidnapping in 2002, and KATU News has obtained mugshots of his other arrests dating back to that time.
In the 2002 incident, an officer responding to a robbery call spotted Christian fleeing the scene. Police opened fire on him, striking Christian in the cheek. The wound was not life-threatening.
Most recently, 35-year-old Christian was seen at a protest in Portland's Montavilla neighborhood on April 29.
After the annual 82nd Avenue of the Roses Parade was canceled due to violent threats aimed at the Multnomah County Republican Party - which planned to participate in the parade - opposing groups gathered at Montavilla City Park for clashing protests and marches.
A Bernie Sanders- and Jill Stein-supporting radical, Jeremy Christian, 35, slit the throats of two good Samaritans who were trying to stop him from abusing two Muslim women. The horror unfolded on board a MAX light-rail train as it pulled into the Hollywood Transit Center on the afternoon of May 27
On April 29, a camerman with The Portland Mercury caught Christian yelling at black people, “F*ck all you n*ggers.”
Facebook posts from the racist, 35-year-old psychopathic suspect support a 2017 presidential ticket with Vermont Socialist Senator Sanders and two-time Green Party presidential candidate, and fellow socialist, Stein.
“Sanders/Stein 2017!!!” wrote Christian on Jan. 25, adding, “We the People have the right (As enshrined in our Constitution) to change any government by any means necessary!!!”
On Jan. 12, on Facebook, Christian threatened to “kill everybody who voted for Trump or Hillary!!!”
Added Christian, to Trump and Clinton supporters, “Reveal yourselves immediately and face your DOOM!!!”
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took thinly veiled shots at President Donald Trump's administration and its supporters while delivering a commencement address at Wellesley College on Friday.
Clinton described many actions of the Trump White House as a "full-fledged assault on truth" and attacked the president's budget proposal.
"You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason," Clinton said.
"Just log on to social media for 10 seconds. It will hit you right in the face," she said, before appearing to reference pizzagate, the border wall, and the travel ban.
"Some are even denying things we see with our own eyes, like the size of crowds," Clinton continued, attacking Trump's inflation of his inaugural crowd size. "And then defending themselves by talking about, quote unquote, alternative facts."
Clinton briefly shifted her attention to the recently proposed budget, calling it "an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us" and "a con," before pivoting back to discussing the assault on truth.
"And there's something else. As the history majors among you here today know all too well, when people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society," she said. "That is not hyperbole. It is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done. They attempt to control reality."
Clinton concluded by explaining to the graduates why she chose to discuss this topic during her speech.
"I believe with all my heart that the future of America, indeed the future of the world, depends on brave, thoughtful people like you insisting on truth and integrity," she said.

An Obama admin whistleblower has come forward with a startling revelation: The Obama administration knowingly let in MS-13 gang members into the US.
From The Daily Caller:
The Department of Homeland Security under former President Barack Obama knowingly admitted teenage members of a vicious transnational gang into the U.S. during a flood of illegal immigration, a leading Republican senator said Wednesday.
Sen. Ron Johnson, citing internal agency documents from a whistleblower, told the Senate Homeland Security Committee that DHS allowed at least 16 MS-13 members to stay in the U.S. after border agents detained them in 2014. The gang members arrived in the U.S. as a part of a wave of unaccompanied minors from Central American countries, where MS-13 is a dominant criminal organization.
“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, said.
During her commencement address to graduates at Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton compared the investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump administration to the Watergate scandal.
Hillary should put a lid on it since it was her husband that was actually hit with impeachment, not Nixon and she herself has been embroiled her entire adult life in investigations and unpunished criminal activity.
Clinton has become unhinged of late. During an interview with New York magazine, Hillary claimed she not only beat Bernie, with the help of the DNC rigging the election but claims she also beat Donald Trump and if not for Russia, would be our current commander and cheat.
More than half of food stamp recipients in twenty-one Georgia counties have been dropped from the program due to state instituted work requirements.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, state figures reveal that 11,770 people considered able-bodied without children were required to find work by April 1 to continue receiving food stamps.
The plan is set to expand work requirements to all 159 counties by 2019.
Around 1.6 million Georgia residents use food stamps, which are funded with federal dollars managed by the state Department of Family and Child Services.
Jen Singeisen, Executive Director of Step Up Savannah, says food stamp programs like this are a chance at better life.
“After SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] was established, mothers who had access to this program had fewer low weight babies. Children who have received stamps are performing better in schools.”
Food stamps are funded with federal dollars managed by the State Department of Child & Family Services.
The department has offered help with job search and training to affected recipients.
The prime minister of Poland has launched a blistering attack on the “political elites” of Europe in the wake of the Manchester terror attack, warning the continent must put in place “strong politicians” willing to tackle the threat or risk “crying over your children”.
Speaking in the Polish Parliament on Wednesday, Beata Szydło seized the moment to launch an excoriating attack on European Union leaders following the Manchester attack which, among others, claimed the lives of a Polish couple, leaving their two daughters as orphans.
“We are not going to take part in the madness of the Brussels elite,” she railed. “We want to help people, not the political elites.
“Where are you headed Europe?” she demanded. “Rise from your knees and from your lethargy or you will be crying over your children every day.
“If you can’t see this – if you can’t see that terrorism currently has the potential to hurt every country in Europe, and you think that Poland should not defend itself, you are going hand in hand with those who point this weapon against Europe, against all of us.
“It needs to be said clearly and directly: This is an attack on Europe, on our culture, on our traditions.”
A convicted rapist and a previously deported cocaine trafficker were among nearly 200 criminal aliens and immigration fugitives arrested in a Los Angeles-area crackdown, authorities said Thursday.
Officials with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) division say of those arrested, 169, or almost 90 percent, had prior criminal convictions, primarily drug offenses, DUIs and domestic violence.
Among those arrested were:
A 29-year-old Salvadoran national convicted of rape in California who officials say was deported in 2013 after serving a nine-year prison term, but subsequently returned to the U.S. illegally;
A previously deported 51-year-old Mexican national arrested May 22 in La Puente who served three years in the California Department of Corrections following his conviction for cocaine trafficking;
A 47-year-old Mexican national with prior convictions for felony assault and another conviction for battery, and whom DHS say was released in 2014 by local authorities despite an ICE detainer; and
A 26-year-old Salvadoran national with a final order of removal arrested May 21 in Azusa who is a registered sex offender based upon his 2014 conviction for having unlawful sex with a minor.
“Operations like this are emblematic of the vital work ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations officers do every day seeking to locate, arrest, and ultimately deport at-large convicted criminals and other immigration fugitives who pose a threat to public safety,” said David Marin, field office director for ERO in Los Angeles. “By taking these individuals off the streets and removing them from the country, we’re making our communities safer for everyone.”
At least eight of the individuals arrested during the just concluded enforcement action now face federal prosecution for re-entry after deportation, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, authorities said.
Los Angeles County had the highest number of arrests — 93, followed by 26 in Riverside County, 23 in Orange County, 21 in San Bernardino County, 14 in Ventura County and 11 in Santa Barbara County.
Nine of the arrests were made in Riverside, with four in Moreno Valley, three each in Corona and Perris, two in Indio, and one each in Hemet, Menifee and Norco.
The majority of those arrested – 80 percent – were from Mexico. Smaller numbers were identified as Salvadoran, Guatemalan, Armenian and Russian nationals.
Members of Davidson College’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter took to their campus quad to get their peers’ thoughts on a brave new initiative: Students for Educational Equality.
Their proposal: Take a couple points away from students with GPAs in the top 10%, and give those points to the students with GPAs in the bottom 10% in order to ensure an equal opportunity for graduation.
Predictably, when students were asked to sign a petition urging their school to redistribute their hard-earned grades to someone who’d slacked off all semester, they objected.
“I don’t know about that… I kinda like people to work for what they get,” responded one student.
“Everyone works hard to attain their own GPA and I don’t think it’s necessarily fair,” said another when asked to sign the petition.
“I’m close to the bottom, I’ll do it,” said one student who apparently had something to gain by taking other students’ good grades.
The YAF members even got a professor to sign their petition to redistribute GPAs.
YAF’s GPA Redistribution project allowed Davidson YAF to ask their peers why they said it was wrong to redistribute GPAs, but thought the government should be redistributing wealth: “If it’s unfair to say that the people with the highest GPAs didn’t deserve it, why is it suddenly fair to say that successful people don’t deserve the money they earned?”
After Davidson YAF released their video, leftists on their campus were apparently triggered by the simple realization that people don’t owe the fruits of their labor to anyone else.
Why was she not arrested for rubbing the victims face in it with her provocactive dress?, wearing a logo of what appears to be an offensive image of a handgun, grenade, switchblade and machine gun then she talks about attending vigils, backlash, islamophobia, attacks on muslim women, hate with hate, ignorance, islam does not teach us (violence?), whilst her imam colleague talks about people misunderstanding barbaric sharia laws, its obvious the talking burka was wearing her thoughts whilst speaking her taqiyya
On Wednesday GOP candidate Greg Gianforte grabbed a Guardian reported by the neck and then body-slammed on a stage in front of reporters. On Thursday GOP candidate Greg Gianforte easily won the Montana US House Special Election. He won easily of singing cowboy Rob Quist. After the results came in Fox News liberal contributor Jessica Tarlov cheered the results as a BIG WIN for Democrats. -- Puh-lease! They couldn’t even beat a Republican who body slammed a reporter!
While the media provide wall-to-wall coverage of Montana Congressional candidate Greg Gianforte’s alleged assault on a reporter from the Guardian — while Republicans across Congress are being asked to condemn Gianforte — it’s worthwhile to remember that the media never hold Democrats to the same standard.
Way back in June 2010, North Carolina Congressman Bob Etheridge, a seven-term elected Democrat, was asked by a student reporter if he supported the “Obama agenda.” Etheridge promptly attempted to grab the reporter’s cell phone camera, then grab the reporter’s wrist, demanding, “Who are you! Tell me who you are… I have a right to know who you are!” One of the student’s friends, who caught the incident on camera, said, “We’re just here for a project.” When the student in Etheridge’s grip asked to be released, Etheridge instead grabbed him by the neck.
Etheridge would go on to be defeated by Congresswoman Renee Ellmers in a very tight election. But the media never bothered to ask every Democrat in power about Etheridge’s behavior, or whether it ought to be condemned. The assumption was that Etheridge was acting on his own, that he had behaved badly, and that was that. In fact, Democrats rallied to Etheridge’s defense. Here’s Politico reporting at the time:
"Motives matter, and I think you can see who was behind this," said DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse just now. "This was a Republican party tracking operation. If it wasn't a party tracker or intern, why is the face blurred and why is the source hidden? You know if it had been a right wing blog, they'd identify themselves and they'd be booking this person on TV all day. Republicans know if they admit their involvement in this game of gotcha it will undermine their credibility. One minute this guy is interviewing a member of Congress on camera and the next a video is released with his face blurred out? If that doesn’t tell you this is a Republican Party hatchet job nothing will." A national Democratic Party official e-mailed around a set of talking points about an hour ago, under the subject heading, "Etheridge Gotcha Video Background."
Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie had a blunt response Thursday to singer Katy Perry's comments after the Manchester terrorist attack: "go to hell."
Perry said in an interview Tuesday—the day after the attack on concertgoers leaving an Ariana Grande show in Britain killed 22 people and wounded dozens of others—that people should "just unite and love on each other."
"I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist," Perry added.
Higbie, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, disagreed with Perry during an appearance on Fox News. He said the argument that social segregation of Muslims in Britain produced the Manchester attack was inaccurate because Muslims tend to choose to self-segregate.
"They feel isolated from the community because they isolate themselves… they've made no attempt to assimilate to the surrounding population," Higbie said. "It is unbelievable that they feel that they are isolated because of some external force. No, they are doing it to themselves."
Higbie then brought up Perry's comments and had harsh words for the singer.
"If you come to America, you're American and nothing else and American foremost," Higbie said. "And I think what this is is we don't have people who respect the culture of the United States of America. I mean, you have people like Katy Perry, for instance. I mean this woman has said, ‘Oh, we need to give them hugs.'"
Higbie turned and looked right into the camera.
"Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes."
The terrorist attack in Manchester has dominated the news this week and rightly so, as it’s one of the most shocking events of recent times. Once again, RIP to all of the victims.
The people of Manchester have banded together and stood tall in defiance in the wake of it though to their credit, and this is perfectly exemplified by a group of Manchester United fans in Stockholm last night for the Europa League final. Enjoying the city and its local pubs, they took to the streets to engage in a mass chant of ‘You Can Stick Your Fucking ISIS Up Your Arse’:
Great stuff from these guys, and you can bet it probably went on for about another hour knowing football fans. Of course, Manchester United then did the business in the final as well, which is great for the city too in the aftermath of the events of Monday night.
President Donald Trump’s push to get in front of the pack at a NATO summit generated indignation in the Balkans and garnered attention on social media — but the man he shoved aside took it in stride.
At Thursday’s gathering in Brussels, Trump put his right hand on the right arm of Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic and pushed himself ahead as NATO leaders walked inside the alliance’s new headquarters and prepared for a group photo.
Trump then stood near Markovic and spoke to Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
Video of the incident spread on social networks in multiple languages.
“It seems Donald Trump did not want that anyone overshadows his presence at the summit,” said the Montenegro newspaper Vijesti.
Other Balkan websites ran headlines such as “America First” and “Where do you think you are going?”
Markovic himself, however, shrugged off the slight.
“It didn’t really register. I just saw reactions about it on social networks. It is simply a harmless situation,” he told reporters after the summit.
Instead of being insulted, he took the opportunity to thank Trump for supporting Montenegro’s membership in NATO. The small former Yugoslav republic is slated to become NATO’s 29th member next month.
And in any case, Markovic said, “it is natural that the president of the United States is in the front row.”
Los Angeles police detectives are asking for help identifying a man, who used race-based guilt trips to gain access to and steal iPhones from a store in the Winnetka before doing the same thing again in Ventura County.
According to police, the man walked into a Boost Mobile store in the 19700 block of Vanowen Street, near Corbin Avenue shortly after noon Tuesday. He asked a clerk to show him new iPhones, and when the clerk refused to bring out the new phones and instead directed him to the tethered display phones, the suspect, who is black, accused the employee of being racist, police said.
“Fearing being labeled a racist, the salesperson presented the new iPhones to the suspect,” according to and LAPD statement. “Once the phones were in his reach, the suspect grabbed the phones and fled the business.”
Hillary Clinton made a dramatic return to the public stage on Friday - and so did her cough.
The Democratic presidential campaign loser gave the commencement address at her alma mater Wellesley - but had barely started her speech when she had a coughing fit.
After first trying to stifle the cough, Hillary eventually had to stop talking to cough. She was eventually handed a bottle of water by another woman on stage.
She then chalked up the cough to allergies.
Eventually the fit, which resembled those she had on the campaign trail, subsided and she was able to deliver her speech, in which she predicted Donald Trump would be impeached.
The then candidate had frequent coughing fits on the campaign trail last year - which she blamed on pollen.
Two white women have been forced to close their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural appropriation.
Kali Wilgus and Liz 'LC' Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, last December.
For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo.
But that's when the trouble started for Wilgus and Connelly, after quotes they gave to the Williamette Week led to them being accused of stealing their success.
Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: 'I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.
'In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.
'They wouldn't tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn't quite that easy.'
Those comments were latched onto by a food blog in the Portland Mercury, which accused Wilgus and Connelly of 'preying' on the women they met in Mexico.
A former Diablo Valley College professor was in custody Wednesday evening after his arrest Wednesday afternoon in Oakland, according to county records.
Eric Clanton, 28, was being held on $200,000 bail after he was booked into Berkeley City Jail Wednesday evening. He was arrested on suspicion of use of a firearm during a felony with an enhancement clause and assault with a non-firearm deadly weapon.
Clanton faces a 9 a.m. Friday arraignment hearing at Oakland’s Wiley W. Manuel courthouse.
A former Diablo Valley College staff directory Web page said Clanton, who earned a bachelor’s degree at California State University, Bakersfield, and a master’s degree at San Francisco State in philosophy, worked at the school since 2015, teaching an “introduction to philosophy with a background in teaching ethics, critical thinking, and comparative philosophy East/West” with “primary research interests” of ethics and politics.
Employee records for 2015 and 2016 listed Clanton as a lecturer with the California State University system and a philosophy instructor with the Contra Costa Community College District, according to Transparent California.
Berkeley police were not immediately available to confirm any connection between Clanton’s arrest and social-media-fueled accusations within the last month about attacks during at least one of a series of protests earlier this year.
Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently interviewed attendees of a Kansas City "white privilege" conference. See how their thoughts compare to the views of actual black Americans when asked about "white privilege."
Ami quickly finds out that most black Americans agree that white privilege is complete bull shit despite the liberals that he interviews outside of the conference believing it is something everybody should be worried about.
